Thailand: Update on new circulation coins
On 16th December, Dr. Pruektichai Damrongrat, the Deputy Minister of Finance went on TV to announce that Thailand will soon have not only 20 Baht circulation coins but also 50 Baht coins. The Treasury department has been asked to work with Bank of Thailand to speed up production of these coins.
Interesting development but I for one do not like carrying coins in my wallet. As if 20 Baht coins are not heavy enough, 50 Baht coins will probably be a pain to carry in a wallet.
